Byron Avenue and Richmond Road - Electrical Infrastructure Installation and Pole Replacement

Start Date:
End Date:

Hydro Ottawa is committed to delivering the highest levels of customer service and safety. To achieve this goal, we regularly evaluate, replace and upgrade equipment in your area – and across the region’s electrical distribution system.

Starting in March 2020, Hydro Ottawa will be conducting a project that involves the installation of new underground duct and manhole structures, the replacement and installation of hydro poles in advance of the Light Rail Transit (LRT) Stage 2 project works along Richmond Road and Byron Avenue.

You may notice increased construction presence throughout the duration of the project, including excavation activities and construction vehicles. Traffic control will be implemented when required to ensure that roads and driveways remain accessible and safe to residents. Tree trimming may also be required.

To safely relocate existing overhead electrical infrastructure, planned power interruptions will occur. We will work diligently to reduce disruptions and our qualified staff and contractors will conduct this work efficiently, ensuring that any inconvenience is minimal.
